Distribution of 2 million PPEs

As mandated by the Government of Ghana through the President’s Executive Instrument (E.I 164), wearing of masks (PPEs) is required of all Ghanaians at public places. The purchase of medically approved PPEs may however come as a financial burden for many low-income families who mostly plough their trade and go about their daily lives through public interactions.

In addition to supporting front-line workers and health institutions, we seek to extend our humanitarian distribution of 2 million PPEs and bottles of alcohol-based hand sanitizer to include low-income families with particular focus on:

  • Market women and market sellers.
  • Hawkers and head potters (kayayei).
  • Drivers and conductors in lorry stations.
  • Inhabitants of slums.

Prevention

To prevent infection and to slow transmission of COVID-19, do the following:

Things You Should Do

Wear a Mask

Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others. Masks may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others.

Wash Your Hands

Wash your hands often, either with soap and water for 20 seconds or a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Cover your Cough & Sneeze

Always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow and do not spit.

Things You Should Do

Avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose

Touching your eyes and face can increase chances of COVID-19 infection.

Social distance

Stay at least 3 feet (about an arms’ length) from other people who are not from your household in both indoor and outdoor spaces.

Stay at home if possible

Work from home, if you can. As much as possible, stay home to avoiding unnecessary travel and to stay away from large groups of people.
